Two men in a fishing boat start discussing the eyesight of a hawk and a fish. Scientists in a lab are also concerned with the eyesight of various animals in comparison to human eyesight, such as the tarsier and hawk, and are shown using a type of microscope to examine the eyesight of a guinea pig. Scientists set up a camera with different lenses in an automobile to allow the left eye vision and the right eye vision to eliminate completely the center post of the vehicle from the driver's line of view. Secondly, they simulate the eyesight of a tarsier and a fish in the driver's seat which enables them to demonstrate the 360 degree visibility of the Chevrolet.
